Baking Fun with Messy MeThings To Do

Messy Me is a fantastic, award-winning brand offering products inspired by founder Helen’s experiences as a mum of 3. As with all little ones they loved making a mess so Helen set about developing products to help manage the mess made by the little ones in our lives. Products range from splash mats and high chair cushions to bibs and changing mats. Recently one of our grandparents, nanny Joyce, had the pleasure of testing out one of Messy Me’s Baking Gift Sets with her 4 year old granddaughter. Here Joyce shares her experience…
‘My granddaughter and I love baking so we were really excited to test out the Baking Gift Set from Messy Me. I had looked at it online and it looked perfect for us and we were delighted to choose my granddaughter’s apron – she chose a red apron with white stars on.
The package arrived quickly and if I am honest, I was a bit under-whelmed with the packaging but like the saying goes…’it’s not what’s on the outside that matters, it’s about what’s inside’. We opened the box and were delighted with what we found inside. There was the apron we’d picked out and I was really happy with the quality. It’s well made and best of all, you can wipe it clean. My granddaughter was delighted and couldn’t wait to put in on and begin baking, she looked very cute!
The box also included a wooden rolling pin, a selection of cookie cutters in different colours and sizes a recipe and ingredients. The great thing is that the rolling pin and cookie cutters are really sturdy so we will use these in our baking many, many times.
The recipe was easy to follow and even though I was doing this with my 4 year old granddaughter, my 2 year old grandson wanted to get stuck in so joined in with us.
Both of them thoroughly enjoyed the baking and at the end there was a big plate of biscuits for the whole family to share – delicious.
I would definitely recommend this as a present for a grandchild. The equipment will last a long time, and I know we’ll be baking again very soon!’.
